The internationally acclaimed Cavalia pushes the limits of live entertainment once again with its latest production: a $30-million extravaganza that is wowing critics and audiences alike across North America. Odysseo by Cavalia–the world’s largest touring production–opens under the White Big Top at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco on Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015. Tickets for Odysseo are now on sale online at www.cavalia.net or by calling 866-999-8111.
With its newest creation, Cavalia marries the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A veritable revolution in live performance, Odysseo features 63 horses and 46 artists in a larger-than-life theatrical production that sends hearts racing. This breathtaking ode to horse and man, imagined by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil, is an absolute feast for the eyes that succeeds in delivering the spectacular with soul. Odysseo comprises a list of superlatives: the world’s largest touring big top, the biggest stage, the most beautiful visual effects, and the greatest number of horses at liberty.
“Nine years after the tremendous success of Cavalia in Dallas, we are thrilled to be returning this January with our all-new production,” said Normand Latourelle, Founder & Artistic Director. “Texas audiences have a deep appreciation of the artistic spirit and a great connection with our unique art form. Odysseo will amaze and touch the hearts of many more Texans by transporting the spectators across the world’s most beautiful landscapes.”
Since its Montreal world premiere in 2011, the Odysseo troupe has already mesmerized more than a million spectators in Canada, the United States and Mexico. Odysseo will conclude its Mexican tour in Mexico City in a few weeks before moving its White Big Top to Texas. Odysseo will then travel to Toronto, Ontario, this spring and to Montreal, Quebec, this summer.
For its part, Cavalia, the company’s original, eponymous production, started its first Asian tour a few months ago. With more than 120,000 spectators in Singapore, Cavalia broke the city-state’s attendance record for a touring show. Cavalia is currently playing in Seoul and will run in Taipei and Hong Kong next year.
